For patients who are extremely nervous or phobic of dental treatment we offer IV sedation to help relax them during treatment.
Dental sedation is carried out intra venously (IV) via a cannula, placed in the bend of your arm or on the back of the hand. During IV sedation, you are not unconscious but in a dream-like state of deep calm relaxation. The sedation lasts between 1-2 hours and when you wake you will have no memory of the treatment and you will be fully recovered the following day. IV sedation is a safe, effective and less costly alternative to general anaesthetic.
